There are thousands of fitness exercise products under the fitness equipment genre including the toning belt. Whether these toning belts are a fitness exercise accessory or an actual piece of exercise equipment is narrow. Traditional exercise equipment may be seen in terms of the treadmill, cross trainer, exercise bike or multi gym. Fitness exercise may be seen in terms of Pilates, yoga, weight training; the act of using a form of the fitness equipment. Toning belts seem to fall into both categories without the actual -doing-.

As the toning belts work by using electrical muscle simulation on the selected area(s) of the body (usually abs) instead of the manual sit-ups, it seems futile. Just plug the toning belt in and it becomes the fitness equipment abdominal machine without the effort of the sit-ups. It carries out the fitness exercise while you do something other than worry about fitness equipment. Is this too good to be true? Read a book whilst a toning belt works the abdominal muscles for you! There is even a new mini toning belt designed especially to give you the perfect buttocks while you carry on your daily chores.

If you weigh about 400 pounds hate any form of fitness exercise and eat like an elephant then the toning belt may not be the ideal stand-alone piece of fitness equipment for you. You will obviously have to consider changes to your diet, lifestyle and investing in a high fat burning piece of fitness equipment first e.g. treadmill, then using the toning belt to shape up. Fitness equipment and toning belts are not going to help much if you are eating far more than you burn off with your fitness exercise selection. For the majority of people the is a great addition to the fitness exercise routine and a very handy piece of fitness equipment.

On the other hand, there are some important distinctions between the two fundamental ideas of medicine, and in this article the idea of acupuncture will go head to head in an effort to compete against Western medicine.

Science Versus Intuition

The basic idea behind Western medicine is the knowledge and science behind every treatment that we can see. Acupuncture, though, is not considered one of those treatments.
